Amazing Attorney & Person
Not all attorneys are created equal and sadly I learned this lesson the hard way. Family law presents many challenges and usually involves children, heartache and decisions resulting in lifelong consequences. Choosing the right attorney makes all the difference in the outcome of your case and unfortunately you usually must make this choice when your life is literally falling apart. My biggest regret will forever be that Samantha wasn’t my initial attorney and did not handle my divorce. However, she did handle my child support and alimony enforcement case and for that I will forever be grateful. Samantha is an outstanding attorney whom I would recommend to anyone. Working with her was an exceptional experience from beginning to end. She was empathetic, knowledgeable, attentive, dedicated and kind. For the first time I felt heard and understood. Not all cases are the same and a true professional takes the time to listen as well as to advise. She took time to explain things, she offered her opinion on decisions I needed to make and she was adaptable. Samantha is a rare find because she has heart and it shines through in everything that she does. By the time I sat in front of Samantha I had already been through a long and difficult divorce plus years of failed attempts at enforcement. I was exhausted and disillusioned with the court system. I was literally in her office against the advice of my family who had encouraged me to give up and move on. I felt alone and helpless. During our first meeting it became clear that Samantha was different from other attorneys. Sure she was a skilled attorney but she understood and valued the importance of her role in her clients’ lives. She understood that cases involving domestic violence have their own unique challenges and she knew how to handle them to best help her client. I was confident that she would work hard to ensure the best outcome for myself and my child. Sadly, experience had taught me that justice doesn’t always prevail but believing that Samantha would do everything that she could to advocate for us was the most I could hope for. She managed to organize the chaos of my case into a concise legal plan all while maintaining a sense of compassion and never letting my emotions get us lost in the weeds. Judges want attorneys to be clear and concise and she has a gift for taking a tremendous amount of information and pairing it down to a few specific and key points. The ongoing trauma that I had endured caused me to suffer more than financial losses and she was a guiding hand throughout the entire process. I eventually had my day in court with Samantha at my side and this time I didn’t tremble or cower. Despite having been to court many times before and my ex husband walking away unscathed and unaccountable each and every time… this day I had hope. Samantha truly impressed me that day in the court room and I saw a side of her that I had never seen before. I was grateful she was on my side. It would prove to be the first time that I walked out of the courthouse with a smile on my face and a friend by my side.

I highly recommend Samantha and her entire team at SFL FAMILY LAW! She demonstrates true compassion and understanding of everyone's complex personal and family situations. The divorce process is miserable and heartbreaking especially when children are involved. However, Samantha and her team make the process seamless as possible and worry free. To have the RIGHT person REPRESENT you, not only needs to understand the situation you and your family's needs, but help you make the right choices throughout the process. This firm will help shape the best decisions during you and your family's life changing event.

Professional and compassionate lawyer
Ms. Samantha Figueroa Latif represented me in my divorce, that was, undoubtedly, one of the most challenging periods of my life. Samantha is an expert in her field. She knows all intricacies of the law and applies common sense to the facts as presented. Her legal advice was always relevant and fact-based. Her ability to listen, understand and effectively communicate facts and a plan of action were truly amazing. Her passion for the job and for my individual case was palpable. In addition, Samantha’s personal warmth and exceptional thoughtfulness made me feel at ease during these difficult times. Amy, her office assistant, was extremely professional and compassionate. She returned my calls promptly and made all necessary steps to advance my case. I cannot thank Samantha and her staff enough – and I could not recommend them higher. THANK you for advocating for me!

Highly professional, dedicated and passionate!
I met Samantha Latif during challenging child custody case. There was so much confusion and dishonesty from the opposing side. However, Samantha always kept her calm and navigated the situation to my best benefit. She is thorough and takes her time to listen and understand your concerns. During this stressful process, I always felt Samantha’s warm and sincere care. She was very honest and detailed in her explanation of the process and possible outcome. I felt that Samantha was always sensitive to my situation and listened to all of my concerns and needs. During the whole process, she was always available to me and I felt like my sister or some loved one to me with jurisdictional training and experience was fighting for my child’s best interest. Samantha knew more than my loved ones and during these dark times Samantha became my closest and dearest. Samantha has high standards of ethics and morality that stands out through her work. Samantha has great communication skills and her writing skills are effective, clear and well-reasoned. She is diplomatic, levelheaded, passionate for what she does and has a compassion for her clients. Samantha is respected by the judge. She knows how to propose her case to the judge, how diplomatically highlight wrongdoings of opposing side without disbarring. That says of Samantha’s high intelligence. Combination of Samantha’s strong knowledge of law and her humanly qualities hard to find these days. I hope, I never need an attorney again, however, Samantha will always be at my heart!

Best choice
After numerous consultations with other lawyers, it became clear Samantha was the best choice for the job. Despite given a short period of time for preparation, she made sure that we were ready for anything that could happen, even addressing preparation for the future depending on the outcome of the hearing. Samantha answered all of our questions, was understanding, and laid everything out clearly. She was also transparent about what to expect financially and was conscious of trying to stay within our budget. Through her diligent and thorough preparation, we received the best possible outcome and I am so grateful to have found her.

Great Lawyer!!
I hired Samantha for a child custody case in a somewhat complicated situation. She was very thorough. She collected background information, asked a lot of questions, and made sure she understood all aspects of my case. She is organized, focused and a straight shooter when it comes to giving feedback about what to expect. She provides guidance when needed and makes herself available on urgent occasions. She is the best I've come across. She will fight for your case. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an honest, empathic and caring lawyer!!

Absolutely recommend
Samantha did a phenomenal job in closing my case. It was open far longer than it should have been, but when I hired her it was finally over. Considering who we were dealing with on the other side, I felt protected in so many ways and Samantha made sure I fully understood every step of the way. I cannot recommend her enough, Samantha is an incredible lawyer and I’m grateful I had her in my corner.

An Extraordinary attorney!
Let me start by saying that I met Ms. Latif during a very difficult divorce, a deeply challenging time in my life and in the midst of pandemic. There were multiple items to work with including custody for the children, alimony, house sale and an ex husband who changed several attorneys throughout the process. In a situation like that, you do get to know your attorney pretty well. The sense of calm and reassurance that Samantha portrays was extremely helpful. At the same time she was always prepared, quick to respond and always on the spot with her legal advice. She is also a mother and a wife and can truly understand the intricacies of a divorce. To me that was maybe as important as the knowledge of the law. Nevertheless in a legal sense Samantha is an outstanding attorney that fought hard to get the best possible outcome for me and resolve this divorce in the fastest way. That fact itself saved me a lot of money. She is direct and will advise you so it works out for you. She is honest and grounded and doesn’t bill to play around with your case. In the world we live in, that is certainly a rare. I hope I don’t need a family law attorney again but if I do, there is no question in my mind who to call! Ms. Latif has my highest possible recommendation!!

One Tough Cookie
Samantha is one tough cookie! Samantha was hired by me during a very challenging divorce. She obtained sole custody of my children for me/. I will Be forever in her debt. I would recommend her as a caring professional and advocate who knows how to play hard ball when needed. This cookie never crumbled!

Phenomenal Lawyer
Samantha is truly a first class lawyer. From the moment I met her till my case was finalized Samantha was attentive to details and responsive to my questions. Samantha's writing, legal arguments, and presence in the court room really set her apart from the other lawyers I encountered. Samantha helped guide me through one of the toughest parts of my life by explaining the legal process to me, what to expect next, and how to achieve the results I sought. The biggest compliment I can give is that while I know Samantha had other cases to handle, she made me feel as if I was her only client. Samantha will be my first call if I ever need a lawyer again. I highly recommend Samantha.

Highly recommended
I don't know where to begin! Shopping for lawyer's in the beginning of this massive life change was hard enough. Luckily there are still good lawyer's that put their clients first, and I found her. Samantha took care of and listened to every want, need and concern I had. Samantha went above and beyond, which made it seem like she cared instead of it just being another case. Needless to say I came out successful, but only from the hard work Samantha put into my case. I only put 5 stars because I couldn't find the 10 star button. Thank you so much Samantha!

Amazing Proffessional
From where shall I start: Samantha made sure from the start to understand all aspects of my case and all background information that can help or influence what I'm trying to achieve. She is organized, focused, empathytic and fair. She gives great feedback about what to expect and what not to.. She replays her understanding to make sure she got everything right to prepare the case documents without going back and forth several times. Samantha provides guidance when needed and she makes herself available on urgent occasions. As long as she believes in your case and the fairness of your demands, I felt that it became her own case and not just as my lawyer. I'll always recommend Samantha and return to her for any follow ups I may need to do in the court, being sure that my case are in safe and trusworthy hands.
